Pretty! Few people on the mountain with cloudy day. Saw wild turkeys and deer.

Nice trail, although much of the trail is covered in fall leaves making it harder to know where you are. I suggest keeping the all trails map running to avoid getting lost.

Tricky to follow. Be sure to download a map before going. Several offshoots along the way that caused me some detours. Shaded early on, then out in the sun as you get to higher elevation on the trail. Pretty views. I ran on this trail--not too steep for that. I went counter clockwise then clockwise. Not sure one way is better.

Did the whole Loop. I’ve done it both in snow and in Fall. Honestly like it MUCH better in the snow. It’s a great snowshoe trail. Not a great hiking trail

Lovely trail . Went in the evening and saw deers and cows. The cows were kinda aggressive . Did about 2 miles in and the elevation gain was not much. Perfect for kids as it’s wide, has animals to see and sometimes people get thier horses as well.

Beautiful hike! Came across some cows but the view at the top was absolutely beautiful! It’s a great loop. Has a perfect mix between steep hills and medium relaxing hiking.

One of the best local hikes. Beautifully wooded and shaded at the beginning and end. There are also spectacular views of the Oquirrh & Copper Mountains and the South Valley in the middle. It’s a little rocky in the middle section as well, but overall a nice moderate hike.

The key to this hike is looking at the all trails map and noting that there are many trails through these hills and each trail has vastly different terrain. When facing the trails from the parking lot the trail to the left or east takes you on top of the mountains (no shade, desert hike, steep with great views). The trail in the middle that starts with the bridge takes you through a shady canyon by a stream (at times) and at the end of May there were lots of flowers. The 3rd way you could go, far right looks to be a road that you can walk along that leads to picnic trails, and has some shade. If you start on one path, you can easily switch to another, as there are lots of trails that cut between the main three paths. *** note this trail is the left most trail that goes across the hill tops. It is longer, steeper and there is not much shade.

This was a great hike for a hot day! Plenty of shade 90% of the way. There are a lot of side trails, so we kinda got lost, and I’m not actually 100% sure what trail we actually ended on. I backpacked my three year old and my awesome 6 year old was a champ and walked it. We did see a few snakes! Also, I read that it is busy, but we got lucky and only saw two other groups along the way.

Keep app running. Extremely easy to get off course. But fun and moderately challenging. Beautiful views at the top!
